This has been asked before, but to forestall the wave of me too, me too...

If you find these things, BUY THEM. It's the "in" present for this xmas, and you aren't going to find it cheaper, or even find it at all. They are already on eBay, for more than the list price.

@shrdlu: My daughter is only 1, so I'm sure this kind of thing is in my future, but for now I'm left wondering: WTF is a zhu zhu??

@anotherhiggins: I'll tell you what it is... it's a cash cow.

@anotherhiggins: It's a cheap battery operated hamster. Not suggested for the under 5 set. Next year people will be looking at it, and wondering what they were thinking. This year (due partially to the 10 smackers price tag) it's the bee's knees.

@shrdlu: "a cheap battery operated hamster"? Sounds kinky.

So if I find them, I should buy all I can then sell them for an obscene markup on craigslist?

@anotherhiggins: If you find them, let me know, and we'll get rich in a heartbeat. They're supposed to retail for $10, but I've seen them on eBay as high as $100. Really. Google "zhu zhu pets ebay" and put down anything you're drinking (unless you want to clean up the keyboard).

Trust me. It'll be Tickle me Elmo, and next year, the world will have moved on. Now's the time to have them.

@thefenst: Most likely these are already on back order. What's up with responding to a dead thread? To my knowledge, the only ones that go back in time are @hobbit and myself. We appear to be helplessly compulsive in this.

This question must have popped up as a similar question when you were looking at something else.

www.shopko.com has had them each of the last 2 days. Also right now they have a hamster house with a zhu zhu pet for 29.99 still available.

Here's a place with them in stock and you can buy them singly. http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/cdc445dd-d3b6-4da0-a4bd-72705790639e/show-your-kids-how-you-cave-to-the-lastest-craze-with-a-zhu-zhu-pets-hamster-in#1

eToys.com also has them in stock but you have to buy four at a time (but can't buy more than 10 total so someone at that store flunked math.)
